TED Talks- Melissa Marshall: Talk Nerdy to Me

20 Dec

Melissa Marshall is a communications teacher asked to teach Penn State engineering students how to communicate the research they gather and the conclusions that they make. The issue is that these students find all this information and use such advanced jargon that is isolates them and keeps the information from being understood and shared. Marshall discusses different techniques she used to break down the barriers, and they actually seemed as though they’d be effective. My aunt is a neuro-scientist married to another scientist, we see them once a year and talk and catch up, but anything to do with their careers is a jumbled mess of confusion. The tips Marshall used on her students would work brilliantly on them.
